Union close preseason friendlies with emphatic 5-0 win

Posted on 02 March 2011 by Breton Bonnette

The Union will train for another week or so in Greece (ending their stay on March 10th) but played their last announced friendly earlier today and after a scoreless but dominant first half, the youngsters took charge and the put the game away in the second. Jack McInerney and newly signed attacker Chris Agorsor led the way with two goals a piece against Hersonissos FC, a third division Greek squad, and with time winding down, Danny Mwanga added the fifth. Roger Torres and Kyle Nakazawa helped the process of opening the floodgates as the Union ended their last scheduled game of the preseason with a bang.

The Union finish their preseason friendly schedule 3-1-2 as they prepare to head to Houston in only two and a half weeks. Sebastien Le Toux dominated last year’s preseason scoring but in 2011, the workload was certainly evenly distributed. Le Toux (despite not taking part in the Greek friendlies) had company in the scoring department this preseason scoring two goals along with youngsters Jack McInerney, Chris Agorsor, and Danny Mwanga. There’s a lot of hope with the maturity of the younger attackers and the addition of a poacher like Carlos Ruiz that the Union’s offense will not stop with just Le Toux and Mwanga this season.
